Last night my grandson and I put a few things together to make a tasty and easy diabetic dessert. I will share with you just what we did.
1 purchased sugar-free angel food cake (we used the whole cake minus 1 piece my grandson ate!)
1 can no-sugar-added (Splenda sweetened) Cherry Pie Filling
1 carton sugar-free whipped topping (we didn't quite use the whole carton)
1/3 cup chopped almonds, divided
Break the cake up into bite-size pieces in a large mixing bowl. Add the pie filling and 2 tablespoons of the almonds; using a spatula, mix together well. Place mixture in a container with a lid. Spread the whipped topping over the cherry mixture and sprinkle with the remaining almonds. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
Note: This is also good with Blueberry Pie Filling when you can find it with no-sugar-added!
WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD
I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.
